hello, everybody, i'm beth troutman, if you love great videos, this is the show for you, "right this minute." amazing footage as lifegu d lifeguards race to save a young boy -- >> caught in a rip current. >> how hard-charging heroes got to him just in time. cops are hot on the trail of a driver. >> she knows she's being chapsed. >> what happens when there's nowhere to go but airborne. this is how to do a handstand when -- >> hand stands just aren't enough. >> the crazy dude who pulls it
9:01 am
off six stories up. and easy to see why -- >> this video is going viral. >> why drinking from a camel is an acquired taste. >> i'm not jumping on the bandwagon. lifeguards get their name for a reason you are about to see first-person video of just why they are called lifeguards. here we are on the southeastern coast of brazil. you see the guys immediately get the call. one person has the head cam rolling and they go down and pick up their flotation devices and they're speeding out to the water apparently a 12-year-old boy caught in a rip current there. you can see everybody on the beach sort of alarmed. these guys head out. eventually we're starting to see where they're headed. all the while you see the guy with the head cam, putting on his flippers, fighting through the waves. you got to duck down. the camera goes underwater a few times. but eventually keep your eyes over here on the screen.
9:02 am
you start to see the boy. there they are, one of the lifeguards within a matter of minutes is able to get ahold of this youngster. they've got him saved. eventually you see a good look at the boy up close when the guy with the camera hands him over his flotation device. you start them heading back to shore and you see the boy definitely shaken up. >> wow, that's amazing that they can spot the one struggling swimmer considering how many people are out on the beach and the water. how do you know this guy is in distress? >> training. that's what they are trained to do. >> true, true. >> the poor kid must have been exhausted. it must be a scary feeling. we've experienced it in the ocean when you experience the one little wave, whoa. >> the boy makes it back to shore safe and sound. police pull you over for a traffic stop. you're supposed to pull over and stop. but one 43-year-old woman from lansing, michigan, didn't do
9:03 am
that. we go to the dash cam video. this happened in deli township. this is from a sheriff's cruiser, you see the woman blow by, running a red light i might add. they make a tu andfollow. e sheriff's office just released this video. this chase reaches speeds of 90 miles per hour. you can see it's snowy there. it's only one lane on each side, so there's not much room for her to navigate to get by other cars. you've got the sirens going. she knows she's being chased. >> there's traffic crossing, too. >> watch what happens. oh. >> oh, that's awful. >> she smashes into a utility pole, but eventually comes to rest by this tree. >> did she hit anybody? >> she didn't hit anybody. the only person that was hurt was her. she suffered nonlife threatening injuries. she's still in the hospital and according to police alcohol and drugs were not a factor.
9:04 am
they're still trying to figure out why this woman just took off. >> wow. maybe she was just scared. >> i mean, if the worst thing you're going to get is some traffic citation, i mean, a couple hundred bucks, yeah, were it stinks, but this is way worse. >> she could have killed herself. >> but you notice all across the street is the damage she wrought, stuff from the car, tree debris all over the roadway. and look at this car. that car newell ahead of time, do you know what, maybe i should stop back here. can you guys do a handstand? anybody? >> i used to be able to. >> against the wall, heck yeah. >> scott prefers to do his handstands -- >> no. >> oh, yeah, in high places because hand stands, you know, just aren't enough. here you go throw the leg over the retaining wall on this building and gets himself in position and hoists himself up right on the edge of that wall. now, wait for this shot here.
9:05 am
there goes his legs. >> oh! >> no! >> okay, that was freaky. >> isn't that cool. he put a go pro on his ankle giving you that shot of what his pose must feel like looking over. >> how do you not get wobbly, right? >> the go pro on the ankle i just feel like it's valid. surely he's been doing handstands for a long time and you put the go pro and then you fall because you're trying to get that shot. >> you got to be confident in your abilities. scott certainly is. here's episodes two of hand stands in high places. this one seems even nuttier to me because he doesn't use that beam there. instead he pushes himself up using just that little piece of metal right there. they fly over the helicopter and give you a really spectacular view of a hand stands in high places. >> ah, geez. criminals caught on camera, the first video might make you
9:06 am
cheer. this is in richmond, california. it's at an arco station. as soon as the surveillance footage picks up, you notice a hooded man, he has a gun and he's pointing it directly at the clerk behind the counter, that clerk according to reports is joseph lee and joseph lee ain't having none of it. another guy from off the screen comes in and watch what he does. he picks this dude up and he body slams him. >> yeah! >> like a speed play. >> yes. >> that's awesome. >> good. >> according to police that was another worker at this store. he was in a different section of the store. heard what was going on. came in, body slammed the guy, held him down until police arrived. >> good. >> this guy was taken into custody and he was identified as 50-year-old transient michael corbin. the next video's going to make you say boo. we got this story from our friends at cairo in washington. this is a burglary taking place at the thurston county animal shelter in olympia, washington. this is going to make you really

mad. this doofus came in and then used his foot to kick kind of a small opening in the cage and then you watch him in the surveillance footage weaseling his way inside the animal shelter. fortunately he was not going after the animals, but he got away with some cameras and he even took some officers' belts. of course, animal shelter upset, they don't want to close off this opening for people to drop off stray animals but they are going to bring in a welder to try to make it more secure, harder to break into. a new discovery show puts the game of stones on display. >> they go into some of the most dangerous and unsecure areas of the world to get these. >> what? >> yeah. >> oh! >> now, meet the gem hunter who braves the sketchy to get the sparkle. >> it's what i know. it's what i do. and see the impressive routine this muscle man uses to get -- >> really, really, really, really fit. >> a normal person can't do one step of that exercise.

product? >> this person has done studies where they think there are beneficial qualities, however, there are arguments saying this is not the case so people are really split. some say it does have medicinal qualities, some say it doesn't. >> the shocking thing about this video is that this child is standing directly behind this camel who's just urinating, like, directly from the source. it's not like they are gathering it in pails or jars. >> it's believed when it comes straight from the camel, that is the best way to have this. other people are questioning it, though. >> right. no thanks. that's it for us here at "right this minute." we'll see you next time.
